    Before I discovered the Gokhale Method, acupuncture provided the most relief, but not enough to continue working and daily activities. Muscle Relaxants, stretching, exercise, and massage did nothing to help. Reading and following, "8 Steps to a Pain-Free Back" by Esther Gokhale helped me get rid of 70% of my neck pain over the course of 1 year. After getting my knees replaced, I was able to get rid of 95% of neck pain following Gokhale. I still have some tightness after long car drives or sitting at a desk. (Probably just need to take more breaks.)

    What most helped me is wearing almost all day long a small weight on my head to naturally correct posture (see gokhale method, gokhale head cushion) and getting my upper body much stronger (calisthenics). I also now totally avoid the sitting position, and only work standing on computer. I also tested a ton of different ergonomic pillows to find a good sleeping position. Eventually I sleep with almost no pillow (a very thin one).
